Clockwork does the festival rounds

This year I was thrilled to have my movie selected to be shown at BitFilm. As far as I know it has played in cinemas in Hamburg, Berlin, and soon Tel Aviv. To be honest, that was my ambition as far as machinima goes, but sadly I wasn't able to be in Germany on the opening weekend as I was already away on holiday...

Last Friday I visited the Cambridge Film Festival in the UK. I was going up to see what movies were on offer, and because I knew BlackAce's film Daddy is Home was playing. What I didn't realise was that they were going to show Clockwork too! I was almost speechless when I found out. BTW, while in Cambridge I was able to interview a few interesting people - more on that in a later post.

Today I learned that Clockwork has also been selected to be shown at a new film festival called Atopic in Paris at the end of October. I had no idea when I made the movie that it would be so appreciated (although it's not everyone's cup of tea of course!)

The Atopic festival clashes with other arrangements I already had, (my mother is flying down from Scotland to visit), however thankfully we've managed to make a few changes which means that hopefully I'll be in Paris to see the screening!

(Anyone know of any other movies showing there?)

The big worry now is how I'm going to follow it up next year - Cloud Angel isn't really a candidate because it's probably not "arty" enough. Better get my creative trousers on!

I'm on the radio. Again!

Well I said I'd talk a bit more about why Cloud Angel is the way it is in a later post. But I lied. (Hey, I can do that!) Instead, Roger & Ken at TMOA Radio have once again kindly invited me onto the show - this time to talk about Cloud Angel.

So, if you want to know why I chose cel shading, or what the meaning is behind the call sign for Cloud Angel, or more importantly why there is only one person on board that can fly the ship then make sure you tune in!

Oh, and if you have other things you'd like me to cover then let me know!

The show is on Sunday 6 September, beginning at 2pm Eastern, 7 pm in the UK, 8 pm in Europe. To listen click here.

And while you're listening, why not jump into the chat room. It'll probably be far more entertaining than my wittering! To go into the chatroom, click here.

Hope to see you on Sunday!
